First print-published by Wildside Press in 2000

Claire came to the English village to find her best friend, Melinda, who’d vanished after
performing in a play which re-creates a seventeenth-century witchcraft trial.

What she found was a murder mystery—and a man. A man who, like her, is trapped between memory and desire.

The play takes place at the manor house where the protagonists lived and died, a house where
the past is still a haunting presence. Did Melinda ask too many questions about the village’s tragic history? To find her, Claire, too, must ask questions. What she learns is that everyone in the village is playing a role—not just in the melodrama, but in real life.

Claire must walk a fine line between repeating the past and surviving the present. For if she puts one foot wrong, she won’t be seeing the future at all, let alone spending it with the man she’s not only come to trust but to love.
